I think the new "moneyball" theme might be this fitness camp they started employing with Tejada, Duda, and Flores. A few of these guys they might think they can remake their bodies enough possibly play other positions defensively (or achieve "adequate" status defensively at their projected position.)

I wonder if Dom Smith already feels this guy nipping at his heels.


Highly doubt it lol



. . . I wouldn't be so sure. Smith is only 4 months older. Both will probobly play in the same league next spring training. (I'm guessing it's too soon for smith to work out with the major league club next spring). I don't want to make too much out of it, but if Winningham is signed and he rocks GCL, we could have a competition there.

It doesn't hurt to have 2 guys in the same position both trying to make the majors.

I asked him what he thought about his future in baseball, “I see myself as the future First Baseman of the New York Mets and I realize there would be a lot of pressure playing in New York but I believe I am up to the challenge,” says the confident lefty.

From March.

You can sense almost instantly that this is going to be a fan favorite if he stinks.

God help us if he's good.....

This might apply to guys like Katz and Garcia, but not Winningham. He's a first baseman.

He's basically been an unofficial Mets prospect since last July. I'm surprised he didn't make the top 50 last offseason.
